the heck is Soul City Café?
Now that we're in the national finals, we are one of five groups competing for the opening slot. You'll be able to vote online for that round, too. This kind of national exposure can be a gigantic step forward for an undiscovered artist, and I think it's really cool-and frankly, amazing-that Jewel, a well-established talent and internationally successful artist, would go out of her way to help artists reach a wider audience.
Soul City Café is a site that aims to help artists of all kinds; Jewel must be a very special person to reach out to undiscovered people, when she could just as easily go about her life and make her own music.
We Won! We will be the band to open
for Jewel on 8 shows of her fall tour! Whoo hoo! We won the Soul City
Cafe Music Quest competition!!
I've received literally hundreds of emails from so many of you, and I want you to know that I am ready EVERY SINGLE ONE! I probably won't be able to answer every single one, just because I have gigs coming up that we have to play! (ha ha!) But I am so moved that you have taken the time not just to vote and tell your friends, but to share our excitement and be part of this wacky, exhilarating ride of ours. We literally cannot do any of this without you.
We had several amazing sponsors who made our trip to
California possible, we thank you all so much! Additionally, Bill Bevins
and Shelly Perkins at Lite 98 continue to be beyond amazing to us, playing
our music and letting everyone know about the voting AND the results!
We also really appreciate al the love and support from Q94's morning
show team Billy Surf, Betty Bodine and Melissa Chase, Billy and the
Breakfast Bunch at Star 107.3, and Eric and Tara at B103.7 FM. Also
a million thanks to Melissa Ruggieri and everyone at the Richmond Times-Dispatch
who helped us get the word out before and after we won!
Susan and the guys.
